How to reconcile citations?

I need to make sure that all the works I cite in my dissertation are included in the references section at the end. What is your super streamlined and efficient method?

My method with much shorter pieces has been to ctrl+f for ( ) in the document, paste all found citations into a separate document, alphabetize, clean up, and generate the final list of references by selecting those citations from my bibliography software. Authors and publishers have to do this all the time...there has to be a better way, right?
Possibly relevant information: I have an old EndNote library with some citations and a more updated but poorly organized/not cleaned Mendeley library. I don't see how that comes into play until I already have a list of which citations I need.
